Reaching Fitness Goals Within Your Own Four Walls
According to a recent survey by Statista, 52% of Americans make a New Year’s resolution that involves exercising more. But, it can be challenging to start any new routine, especially one focused on fitness. Designating a space to work out in your home can be a great way to help you achieve your goals and stay active. On that note, here are five luxury listings with dedicated space for getting in shape in 2023.
117 Tuttle Avenue, Clarendon Hills – $2,799,000
This newer-construction, five-bedroom, 8,600 square-foot home has a long list of luxury amenities, but its lower level is a fully outfitted recreational retreat. The 23’9”x17’7” exercise room offers ample space for equipment, yoga, stretching and free weights. Plus, it’s attached to a full bathroom for easy access to a post-workout shower. And once you’ve completed your exercise for the day, you can retreat to the home theatre or play ping pong in the game room.
118 E. Erie Street #26A, Chicago – $1,760,000
Your fitness goals are a convenient elevator ride away in this full-service luxury condominium building, which features the legendary service of the Ritz-Carlton without a hotel attached – the only property of its kind.

Better yet, the two-bedroom condo has access to an array of five-star amenities, including a fully outfitted exercise room and – for post-workout recovery – a spa with massage room. The building’s concierge desk will arrange personal training sessions and spa appointments.
2028 N. Fremont Street, Chicago – $5,350,000

The property includes a large side yard that is covered with turf, allowing for year-round outdoor exercise. Whether a HIIT workout, jumping rope, or running sprints, this space is perfect for all kinds of training. It’s even large enough to dribble a soccer ball through cones or toss a football. The four-level, 6,090-square-foot home also has plenty of space for indoor fitness activities. The lower-level recreation room measures 31’x19’, while a third floor sitting room is the perfect space to set up a Peloton studio.

Additionally, with its location along Sheridan Road’s popular bike route and only two blocks from Lake Michigan, there are plenty of opportunities to get outdoors to enjoy a ride or swim.

This home’s exercise room will have you reaching all your fitness goals this year, and you’ll also be shaving strokes off your golf game with a lower-level recreation space that is large enough for a putting green or golf simulator. With four bedrooms, three full baths and two half baths, this newer-construction residence is a fantastic find in a coveted Chicago suburb. No detail is overlooked with custom built-in cabinets throughout, detailed millwork, and a spacious chef’s kitchen with high-end appliances.
